Irritated with product

Comments about Hands-Free Can Opener:
I love it when it works, which was for a few weeks. Then it slowed. I replaced batteries. Kept stopping mid circle; finally totally quit and wouldn't release the lid!
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Works great, great price.

I've been looking for this can opener for a while. I had one like it years ago, and really liked it. It works well, is fast, and the best feature about it is that it stops automatically. All the others I've tried, other than the first one, had to be manually stopped. Although the description doesn't say if it does stop by itself, the price was only half as much as ones in the store, so I decided to take a chance. I'm glad I did.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I purchased this can opener which replaces another one that opened cans without leaving sharp edges, however due to arthritis in our hands, husband and myself were having difficulty holding and turning the old one at the same time. This one doesn't cause those problems. I would tell folks that don't think it's not working when you first try to turn it on, it needs to be actually seated on the can in order for the motor to work. A piece of information that could be noted in it's description possibly in the catalog. I was thinking that I would have to send it back, but not so. I am really going to love this.
I would buy this again and again.
I had this can opener for a long time. It finally died on me and I purchased a similar one from another company. Big mistake. It didn't work from day one. It's was trash. I won't be fooled again by look a likes. I ordered another one of these.

Easy to use, no sharp edges. Have only had one can that it would not open.
Great can opener

I read reviews before purchasing. Most of the cons were about irregular cans not being able to be opened with it. It says clearly in the directions that it cannot be used for irregular cans. The directions also clearly say you have to hit the button two times for extra wide can tops. It also says you must remove it and put it back on just before the last cut for those larger can lids. When used as described in the directions it works very well. I would be sure to keep the cut can away from children however because the edge is highly sharp. The removed lid though is quite smooth. This can opener works well for those with arthritis or difficulty turning conventional openers.
This is a great product!

This is a wonderful, useful gadget, especially for a senior citizen.

After many irritating tries, I finally got it out of the damm hard plastic. Then I spent another half hour, putting batteries in, taking batteries out, turning them upside down & backwards, & it still doesn't run. I will try again when I have more time. if it still doesn't run, it will go in the garbage, not going to spend any more money on it. As far as I'm concerned, its a piece of junk anyway & thats where it will go. Not Miles Kimball fault, totally the ones that made it. Maybe it will work if I could just get it to turn on. Oh yes, my batteries were brand new.
I will buy this again if needed

It is a marvelous opener. I would suggest the you tell people it has to sit on a can in order to work.

Got to have this in your kitchen !!!

This has been the best can opener I have ever used. No more trying to twist or turn a conventional opener and trying to fit a can on an electric opener under a cabinet is now a thing of the past. Getting a great deal while they are on sale. Makes a great thoughtful gift.
